Thanks 4 answering my question, 4got to say, how long can an infection from a cyst or impacted wisdom tooth go on for, had my pain now on and of 3yrs?

A long time!: A cyst, unless removed, will usually continue to grow. Also, an infection that goes untreated may continue to persist. If you are having pain that persists, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a dentist or oral surgeon, who can take the proper type of x-ray to view the area of your wisdom tooth to locate any potential problems/cysts/ or infections. Get thee to a dentist! ...Read more

I have seen 4 oral surgeons. They said that the cyst and the impacted wisdom tooth are fine and I don't need to get asugery and to leave them, even though I have pain in the gums and palate. What should I do?

I have seen 4 oral surgeons. They said that the cyst and the impacted wisdom tooth are fine and I don't need to get asugery and to leave them, even though I have pain in the gums and palate. What should I do?

What are the causes?: Usually I always trust the oral surgeon since they know best about dentigerous cyst. You should ask them about the cause of the pain in the palatal gum. There must be an explanation given somewhere in the consultation. It would be very odd if there wasn't any thoughts given. ...Read more

Referred pain: Almost anything that hurts someplace can have some pain in other places show up.

3yrs of pain cheek bone large, impacted wisdom tooth and cyst taken out, lump on cheek as gone pain little better, was told pain was in my ed, neglet?

Some suggestions: Unfortunately you can't get more than some basic answers over websites such as these. Specific problems and complaints require one on one clinical exams along with x-rays and full dental and medical histories. I suggest that you get a few recommendations for dentists in your area for a consultation. Local dental schools or teaching hospitals with dental programs would be another excellent resource. ...Read more

I have an impacted wisdom tooth and cyst. Is it dangerous to remove? Could it potentially damage my jaw?

I have an impacted wisdom tooth and cyst. Is it dangerous to remove? Could it potentially damage my jaw?

More: More dangerous to leave it in place. As cyst expands damage can be done to surrounding bone and to 12 year molar. There are potential risks to any surgery, but the potential risks posed by leaving an impacted cystic tooth in place are greater. See an expert, an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, who has more than 8, 000 hours of specialty training beyond Dental School for the best care. ...Read more

Yes - there can be: Some nasal bleeding. There could have been a sinus perforation in the removal process use of nasal sprays (saline) might be indicated. Always best to check with your doctor. I'm assuming this was an upper impacted wisdom tooth. I'm also assuming the anesthesia was deep sedation without intubation hope this helps. ...Read more

I had an impacted wisdom tooth and cyst (associated with that tooth) removed. Will it affect my teeth aligning with Damon Braces on?

Not a problem: Removing wisdom tooth/cyst should not affect Orthodontic care. Ask both the Oral Surgeon AND a qualified Orthodontic Specialist to advise depending on your anatomic malrelationships. By the way, nothing Magic about Damon braces. Treatment dependent on skill and experience of the operator (that's why you should see a specialist), not the hardware. ...Read more

Had impacted wisdom [email protected] removed (upper) under gen anesthetic 5days ago palate so sore how long until its healed? @ had biopsys done thanks x

Enucleation of cyst: Pain, tenderness to palpation, and dysphagia can sometimes linger for several weeks and this is all within normal limits. Warm salt water rinses, analgesics, and sometimes topical anesthetic gargling can temporarily help, but allow time for normal healing. This was surgery, like any other procedure on a leg, arm, abdomen, etc. Post operative pain is normal and narcotics will help but not 100%. ...Read more

I'm a little freightend I have a t facial pain in the palate, but been told I have impacted wisdom tooth with cyst@cheek is swollen, could you reassure?

Follow up cyst: I am not sure what you mean by "a t" facial pain, nor how long ago your cyst was first seen, but swelling of the same cheek (as the cyst) with pain suggests that your cyst may have grown and could now be infected. Follow up with your oral surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Even if symptoms were to temporarily ease up, do not ignore. ...Read more

I'm sorry I meant atypical facial pain, was told 3 yrs ago it had nothing to do with my impacted wisdom tooth @cyst my palate painful swollen cheek?

Check it out: If you've had any type of facial pain on one side with swelling you should consult your dds for problems involving your wisdom tooth if one is present in the area or under the skin in the area. They can definitely cause facial pain and swelling especially if partially erupted or trying to cut through the skin. Check with your dds again, if they ignore it find one that will listen to you. Good luck. ...Read more

Sinus perforation: Apparently while removing the cyst abd the impacted molar the sinus got perforated. That is why you see blood when blowing your nose.

This situation is not uncommon and it happens many times ...Read more

Hi, is it normal to be spitting blood after extraction of impacted wisdom tooth@cyst under general anesthetic 4days later, thanks x?

Depends...: It really depends how much blood. If it's just a small amount, it can appear to be a lot when it mixes with the saliva. It will generally be pinkish to red, but should not be a great amount. If your mouth is filling up with dark or bright red old and you cannot stop this with pressure you should be seen by your surgeon right away. ...Read more

Impacted wisdom tooth@cyst removed under general anesthetic 5days after spitting some blood, dr on here answered 2 go gp, should I be worried? Thank

Wisdom tooth postop: Absolutely, go see your surgeon! He will want to know what is going on, and would also want to examine you. Five days after surgery, it's likely nothing is really wrong and you may have spit a blood clot, but the surgical judgment lies in the hands of the doc who did surgery, not another provider. ...Read more
